Vans Europe in Cali – Day 4

The fourth day was def the first downer for the crew. It started pretty cool, got up, went for some breakfast and decided to start the day with some nibble session at the Santa Ana skatepark. I´ve known that park from a prior visit with Bart de Jong earlier that year. It´s an OK park, mostly street. Everyone had fun there, Bruno almost killed himself with a hop over the fence out of a far dinstance bank. He slightly touched the top rail and went over his bars. Luckily nothing bad happend, as skinny as he is – he takes it like a man, haha.

But to continue with crashes, Tobi did some really cool luc-e grinds. At one of them he wanted to extend really down and pushes a bit too hard. His crash resulted in a twisted knee but he still continued to ride for that session. As usual, being of the bike the knee started to swell and he couldnt move it anymore that good. Fast forward – his knee was injured with a torn ACL! Back to that day Tobi took it easy and had a few cold ones. Everyone was pretty sore and also not that psyched to ride after Bruno´s and Tobi´s crashes. So we decided to chill and get some maintenance on the bikes at Epic Bike Store.

Epic BMX Store, Huntington Beach, CA.

Ben changed his bent frame and Bruno need to get a new wheel as his one was pretty done. Thanks to Epic being so cool and supporting us!!

Pit stop done our gps leaded us to a park in Long Beach. It looked pretty cool, but I guess since it was early evening it was super packed with skaters and inliners. So you could barely ride it properly. Ben had some cool lines in the deep end of the bowl and bruno did some rail tricks. Thats pretty much it!

Stay tuned for day 5!
